I have been a fan of The Improvables for a long time now and have attended many of their shows, even before I met my husband. I’ve seen them perform in three different venues and have been extremely entertained at every show I’ve attended. If you’re looking for a new, family and budget friendly date night activity, you should definitely check out one of their shows! You’ll come away laughing, and you can’t go wrong with a date night that makes you laugh.
Where: Bountiful Davis Arts Center (90 N Main Street, Bountiful)
When: Fridays at 9:00pm (for ~90 minutes)
Cost: $6/adults, $5/students or members of the Bountiful Davis Arts Center
Confession: We had not been to an Improvables show since before we became parents, over four years ago. The venue that they were in previously, limited the time when they could start their shows each week and shows didn’t start until 10pm. As parents of two young kiddos, that was past our bedtime and we were generally too tired to last beyond the first game that they played, so a show never got added to our date night plans. Since they moved to the Bountiful Davis Arts Center at the beginning of the year, I have been planning to make a date of their show and laugh together late into the night.
I love that the Improvables put on family friendly shows and provide quality entertainment. They are a family of performers and I’ve seen the same performers on their stage for years, scattered among new and talented faces. Each of them have a fun and unique personality and bring their unique interests and quirks to the shows. If you’ve attended more than one of their shows, you know that they are filled with inside jokes and some of the topics they base their games on play off of funny moments from past shows or jokes that they have based on the players’ lives and interests.
We had so much fun at on our recent date, and the laughter was just what we needed after a week of stressful house situations. We’re looking forward to attending more shows in the future and continuing to support The Improvables and local art.
